3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Sixgill. Golden pour, smallish head. Great balance on the nose, heavy citrus and just a bit hop forward. Hops shine even a bit more in the flavor -- malts patiently wait their turn, then slide through before a bitter after. Crisp, clean, and yet quite flavorful. Maybe a little skunky on the back end -- but this is really nice. Like it a lot.

On tap at Oblivion Taproom in Orlando. Pours a golden copper with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, lots of grapefruit, citrus, and resin with a hoppy, bitter finish. Goes down easy and nice tasty bitter APA

Bottle from Mari’s. Best by November 2014. Pours hazt orange with a medium sized white head, strong retention. Gorgeous looking beer. The aroma has huge tropical fruit, light citrus, some pine notes in the distance. The taste has a nice dry bitterness that fades quickly to a grainy, juicy grapefruit juice, light pineapple. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice golden orange with a two finger off white head that lingers for a while and fades to excellent lacing. Aroma is of earth citrus, pine resin, bready malts, light sweet malts, and light caramel. Taste is of citrus (grapefruit and orange), pine, bready biscuit malts, sweet malts, and some light caramel malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced pale ale, and drinkable pale ale that is pretty sessionable.

This is a really nice APA. The pour was light gold in color but with a minimal off-white head. The head left some nice lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was balanced, with some caramel, earth, grass, light grapefruit and yeast. The body and flavors were delicious, with notes of spicy and floral hops, a touch of sweet malt and some yeast and fruit. This is definitely one of the better American-style pale ales available right now.

Hazy copperish golden with a thin foamy head. Lovely pale ale aroma driven by semisweet pale malt and a touch of golden toast, with a smack of grassy and orange rind hoppy notes. Crisp hoppy flavor with orange zest, just the right amount of citric bitterness, a dash of lemon grass, and maybe some pine, with a sturdy pale malt body and a whisper of marmalade.

Been a while since I got to add a beer around here. Cask @ Public House for SF Beer Week (along side "Stone + Bear Republic TBA", so info was a bit thin). Great clean hop aroma with a nice floral-ness. Very mellow, the cask helping that even more. The light aroma/flavor floats along well into the aftertaste. Quite a tasty beer and a nice treat for beer week.

Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full hazed orange. Creamy foam. Thick swabs of poofy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice and zesty pink grapefruit.
Taste is sharp, spicy, oily, quite bitter. Feels heavier than APA. More IPA. Very nice.

Pint on tap at The Olde Depot. The aroma is very pleasant with sweet, floral, and citrus notes. Fairly quaffable. Mildly hazy golden/orange body with a medium egg white head and good lacing. This beer starts with a nice, moderate, malt sweetness. Becomes rather citrus-like after, with heavy emphasis on orange and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes quite bitter. A nice American Pale Ale...
